What ever you choose, avoid the factory ppf! Really terrible job. My dealer was so apologetic, I wasn't charged of course but thought I'd share this photo. I think it was also cut on the car...

Ouch, I’d be gutted if that was mine, but at least its now foc? Will you bother having it removed and refitted or just live with it until its time to move it on? Talked to my opc on friday about ppf v ceramic, went with ceramic and i’ll take the hit (literally) on stone chips. Seemed really expensive, was talking £2.5k for the complete car, v £900 for ceramic (Gtechnic). Wow, £2.5k and it turns up like that. May yet get someone local to fit some ppf pieces just on the rear haunches and snout around the main impact zones.

Interesting, I also selected the PPF option and it was perfect. I took the car to my detailer to get the non PPF bits sorted and he commented he was disappointed that the PPF was so good, he’d been hoping for more remedial work. Maybe I’ve been lucky!

Hmmm, mine was sent back to Reading for a new PPF on the bonnet and one of the stone guards. Not what I expected for a factory fitted option.

I saw a Lizard Green coupe with gold wheels and I think what must have been the Crayon interior on the streets of St Johns Wood last night....bold spec!

Maybe not that bold, there is one in Porsche Tewkesbury of similar spec last Friday! No gold wheels though, cancelled order apparently, so maybe bold after all..... Looked a lot better than it sounds!

Saw this myself in the showroom - cant remember the wheels exactly, but it had the black/island green interior. Actually looks quite nice, although it wouldn't be one I would go for personally!

Looking at a couple of stock C2s ... both have their positives and negatives - what are the thoughts on the following options now people have driven a little more ?

- Sport Design Package
- Rear Axle Steering
- PASM lowered suspension

Both have Sport exhaust and Chrono which I wanted and both decent colour (silver and blue).

Preference is lowered with better wheels but doesn’t have RAS and Sport Design Package ... bit is around £4K cheaper as a result (plus some other spec that I am not too worried about !)

Thoughts ?

The sports design pack is subjective of course, but having originally thought it was a must have, the more time I spend around physical cars, the more I prefer them without.

The gaping mouth looks a lot better with a number plate on; and for me, there are too many surface/colour changes on the rear with the sports design pack.

It's now not on my spec.

I would imagine PASM is a must have from a desirability/resale perspective, but 10mm is nothing visually (notwithstanding the extended lower lip spoiler and, I think, a higher max angle rear wing?) and we probably wouldn't notice it when driving.

More people say RAS is a must than those that say dont bother - I would however rather have RAS than PDCC.

Each to their own, of course!

Screws in the outer edge of the front number plate a definite must have option!

They ensure the plate is as flush as it can be at each side as without them the parking sensors will drive you mad. The sensors pick up the edge of the plate and will react every time the speed drops to a level that activates them.

If you do avoid the factory PPF, make sure you find an alternative....

Sorry, is this an option or do you mean it should be?

My C2S had RWS and -10PASM chassis, and I’d only get that spec when getting another. I drove the dealer’s C4S which has standard ride height PASM, and didn’t have RWS, and I was surprised how different it felt. The steering felt less direct, and was harder to hold your line through fast corners.

I’d try and drive both specs to see what you prefer. I like my cars to feel lively and direct, but appreciate not everybody does...
